I like the look of this one, anyone in the UK have spare cuttings? I could
swap with one of dichondraefoilum?

P. dichrondrifolium is white with 5 petals. P. tetragonum is much
larger, pink and 4 petals. THe profile of the flower is very
striking. THe growth habit of course is much different. P. dich. a
mound with small round leaves. P. tet. has the unusual LONG
squarish stems with flowers at the end. P. tet. as a seedling to up to a
year (when a small plant-seedling)looks like a zonal until the true nature of
the square stems makes itself evident and it takes off. The young leaves
may even be zoned. My mature plants sometimes never have any
leaves-sometimes very small-tiny leaves. Long stems with flowers.
